Earlier this week, the White House announced more details on job training and workforce development plans contained in its FY 2013 budget proposal. The plans call for streamlining programs for laid off workers into a Universal Displaced Worker Program, and for the creation of an American Job Center network tounify all Federally-supported One-Stop Career Centers and electronic resources.

The components of the new Universal Displaced Worker Program include:

  • reemployment services for every displaced worker 
  • $4,000 training awards 
  • support to pursue training or look for work 
  • wage insurance for older workers 
  • investing in proven and effective training 

While much of these new initiatives can only be accomplished through congressional action, the Administration does plan to implement some changes through executive action. For example, the announcement says that:

“In the coming months, the Administration will also unveil a new, integrated onlineAmerican Job Centerat JobCenter.USA.gov which will provide a single point of access to resources oriented to the needs of an individual or business. This online tool will mean 24-7 access to key information to help people find a job, identify training programs, and tap into resources to gain skills in growth industries. The website, which will incorporate information from key federal programs and critical local resources, will also serve a resource for the brick-and-mortar Job Centers throughout the country.”
